Villa Il Santo, strategically oriented at the top of one of the most perfectly situated Chianti hills, offers our guests stunning views of the Tuscan valleys and countryside beyond.

Originally built in the year 1000AD, Villa Il Santo has undergone a lengthy and meticulously conceived restoration.

Today, as a result, guests may enjoy the extraordinary views provided from its unique Tuscan hilltop location.

This gorgeous villa, which has been beautifully appointed with the latest modern facilities, has all the comforts that one might want for a memorable and truly unforgettable holiday. Il Santo, is rented as one villa but is composed of two separate buildings, which are connected by a glass corridor.

Both the old tower and the hay barn have been completely restored with old brick floors and reclaimed wooden ceilings, showcasing the best of contemporary Italian design, with a very cool, clean look.

At guests' disposal:

The infinity swimming pool (10x5 metres, 1.20-1.40 depth) with its annexed small pool with hydromassage overlooks the amazing Chianti countryside. Vineyards changing colors with the seasons, and the silhouetted towers of the San Gimignano skyline on the horizon, guarantee complete relaxation under the Tuscan sun.

For children up to the age of 2 years, cots are supplied free of charge and must be requested at time of booking.

At Villa il Santo, a cook is available on short notice to prepare typical, tasty Tuscan dishes. An excellent chef is available on request to create special menus for wedding banquets, parties and receptions.

Extra cleaning services can be arranged on request.
